Quality Improvement

The Department of Community Health and Family Medicine is committed to continuous improvement of the care provided to our patients and the community and the education of all our learners. The quality improvement team is involved in coordinating and conducting quality improvement that focus on health services research and medical education, generating reports to monitor the progress of ongoing projects. We are currently focusing on reducing high cost/low value processes, improving patient satisfaction, reducing hospital readmission, and improving meaningful use of the electronic medical record system. In addition, we regularly distribute information regarding quality measurement tools and compliance with quality indicators and the status of current quality improvement projects to department personnel.
